Priyanka Chopra Reveals This Left Her In ‘Deep Depression’

Priyanka Chopra, the Indian actress, and former Miss World, recently opened up about her botched nose job experience and how it led her into a “deep depression.” In an interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show, the actress revealed that the routine procedure cost her three acting jobs and made her question her identity.

The 40-year-old actress recounted how she was recommended for surgery to remove a polyp causing a lingering head cold. However, during the procedure, the doctor accidentally shaved off the bridge of her nose, causing it to collapse. Upon removing the bandages, Chopra and her mother were horrified by the results. Her original nose was gone, and her face looked completely different.

The media dubbed her “Plastic Chopra” following the botched surgery, and the nickname stuck with her throughout her professional life. In her 2020 memoir, “Unfinished,” she wrote about the experience and how it sent her into a “deep, deep depression.”

The “Citadel” star admitted that she thought her career was over before it even started. However, her father convinced her to get corrective surgery, and she was able to rebuild her confidence. Bollywood director Anil Sharma also helped her restart her career by offering her a supporting role when she was supposed to play the lead.

Despite the initial setback, Chopra has since made peace with her new look. “I’ve gotten accustomed to this face. Now when I look in the mirror, I am no longer surprised; I’ve made peace with this slightly different me. This is my face. This is my body. I might be flawed, but I am me,” she wrote in her memoir.

We wish Chopra all the best and commend her for speaking out about her experience. Her honesty and vulnerability are inspiring and can help others going through similar struggles.
